MY REVIEW

  • 7.3/10Ratings

    REMARKS

    Good remark is that - the management plays a good role in building a student personally. Each of the students has personal mentor assigned who looks after the growth of the students. We have brainstorming session which are helpful. Also, there is a counselor available for students for mental stability. Bad remarks - they should expand their accomodations services and rooms are less and its on first on come basis.

  • FEE STRUCTURE AND FACILITIES

    The fee for two years is 11 lakhs which is paid on installments of 2. 75 lakhs across 2 years. There is a library deposit of 4000 which is refundable. No other additional fee to secure the seat, once you are cleared through all the rounds, you have to go on the given date, and pay the fee their. Yes the college provides transparency in the fee breakdown.

    PLACEMENT WING

    Placements drive occur two times a year, first is for the First years for summer placements that is called internships and the second drive for the executive placements that is for the final years for a job. In my course, many media companies visits the college for summer placements as well as executive placements. Like - Viacom18, Zee, Star TV, Fashion Tv, Turner Media, Bytedance, IAMAI, Amazon, HDFC bank, Estee Lauder, Morgan Stanley, GEP, Reliance Retail, Indian Oil and many more. Our institute have a central placements. Which means, irrespective of the streams one is studying in, he or she can apply to any companies coming for placements. That means, I, being a media student can also apply for the HDFC bank, if the roles suits me or I want to. Percentage of students placed every year is 98%. General step follow to apply for a company is that you have to apply for the company on the college portal, then you have to submit the resume on the portal itself, after shortlisted by the company you have to appear for the GD/Interviews rounds, and so forth. The institute prepares the students beforehand. This preparations include the AC/DC process, that is assessment centre and development center where students on trained on their capabilities. Apart from that regular mock interviews and Mock GDs are scheduled.

  • ADMISSION

    I wanted to pursue management in media and Entertainment. For this stream, there are not many colleges in India. Welingkar being a good one in this stream, I had applied for it. So there are basically two mediums for admission - 1) Through your CAT/XAT/CMAT/ATMA, with different cutoffs. Followed by around of GD and Interview. 2) It takes admissions through certificates. This means if you have certificates of high level, in any stream, Welingkar can offer you a chance to go directly to the GD and Interview round. However, one should have taken any of the above exams.

    HOSTEL FACILITIES

    No, I have not opted for hostel. There is boys hostel, and for girls the hostel is in renovation. Until then, they have provided different flats and girls usually share in 2/3/4 seatings. The flats are under supervision of college administration.

  • ALUMNI

    We have a Alumni Club where each and every alumni is invited to remain connected. Also, we have an alumni meet every year where all alumni would gather and celebrate.

    FACULTY

    The faculty includes both visiting faculty and permanent faculty. Visiting faculty are mainly the experienced people from the industry. For example, Amit Behl, is our professor, for media, who is an expert in field of entertainment. As far as qualifications is considered, the associate professors are also either MBA with much experience or PhD. Average age of faculty would be around 35- 40years. The credits pedagogy the institute follows is having 2 types of subjects. First is 3 credits subject which have 15 lectures per subject. Second is 1. 5 credit subjects which have only 8 lectures per subject.

    CAMPUS LIFE

    Gender ration would be 60:40, males: females. There are different labs like INNOWE- the innovation lab, RedEx - innovation lab 2, Agricultural lab - for rural students, IT lab- for computer and other things. We have 2 library also, with lots of database for students to access.

    COURSE CURRICULUM OVERVIEW

    The college offers it's course on a trimester basis. Each trimester we have different number of subjects. The subject criterion is divided into 60 marks for external and 40 marks for internal which is further divided into 20 marks for presentation and 20 marks for written test. The pedagogy include theoritical knowledge as well as practical knowledge, depending on subject to subject. In some subject, where industry exposure is necessary, the institute take the students on immersions, industrial visits etc. In the first month of admission, during the foundation, immersions happen which are mandatory to attend. This lays a better outlook for a student to understand industry from day one only. Apart from that, visits keep on happening whenever required according to the subjects.

    COLLEGE EVENTS

    Major annual event that happens every year is IMPACT that is the inter colleges cricket tournament. More than 20 colleges takes part on this and this happens on a very great level. Another event is WEBIZ fest, which is business level competition across different Bschools. There is also an event called "Friends of India" to felicitate the efforts of individuals who have distinctly contributed to the Socio-Economic and Cultural development of India across the globe.

  • LOAN/ SCHOLARSHIP PROVISIONS

    There is no scholarship provided but you can take education loan from different banks. The bank requires certain documents from the college like admission confirm receipt, etc and some of your personal documents and it can avail it. Just visit to your nearby bank.

100% of placement with good companies

Remarks -

The positive remark would be the placement as because at the end of the day it’s all about your placement and packages. So, yeah in this field i think you can not get the best out of it. As i have seen many of the colleges which actually tells u that we give 100% placements and all but at last they fail to but this is not in my college. Last batch that is 2017-19 batch has just passed and almost everyone had been placed with some or other good companies.

Entrance Preview -

They have their own exam but CAT is acceptable well, I think that attracted me to this college was the placement assistance, which gave a positive vibe, though I did not opt for placement through them, as I was already well placed in my field of work.


Course Curriculum -

I did not attend the internship as I was already working at the time when i joined the MBA course here but there is 100% jobs assistance for the people who are not working.
